I guess BK that is what makes the band so enduring, that we all enjoy different aspects to the band. I have said many times I am a 71 fanatic and that I do not particularly enjoy the extended playin's, I enjoy the shorter version of playin but I have anjoyed reading you's and others thought on playin and have been listening to many of the extended playin's ( I have not come around yet but I am gettin there!) but I love the grittiness and shoot em up style that sets the stage for 72-74 in my opinion and was the transition from that awesome but uncomparable years of 67-70 to any other period of the Dead. 71 is the bridge to the future of the band. I am lovin all this talk on 71! Such a great year of two drummers to one and Pig to Keith and then the both of them. Just a fascinating period in the band. 12/71 is a great month for the band! I appreciate all the comments on this and all the knowledgeable posters out here!
